Use an arcade stick — or a more comfortable pad — on these classic retro beasts.

Fans of retro gaming will want to take notice: the latest Brook converter allows you to connect a PlayStation 4/PlayStation 3/PC controller to either the classic Sega Genesis (a.k.a. Mega Drive) console, or NEC’s TurboGrafx-16 (a.k.a. PC Engine) alternative. There are a lot of great games on these platforms that would benefit from the arcade-quality controls offered by a good fight stick, so you’ll want to check out the pre-order at Arcade Shock if you’re interested!

The long wait is over.  The Super Converter for the Sega Genesis (aka Mega Drive in Japan) is almost here, allowing you to use hundreds of quality PS3 and PS4 control pads or arcade sticks to relive the retro classic gaming. 

Play thousands of games from the huge library this system has to offer, from the Streets of Rage series, Gunstar Heroes, Contra Hard Corps, Golden Axe and much more.

Additionally, for the first time, Brook added another system, NEC’s TurboGrafx-16 (aka PC Engine in Japan), which has it’s share of memorable retro games, Bonk’s Revenge, R-Type, Splatterhouse and many others.
